No such thing as dense for Mettler-Toledo

With product safety of paramount concern to food or pharmaceutical packing companies, Mettler-Toledo International Inc. has released its new Safeline X3310 X-Ray system that offers outstanding detection of dense foreign bodies, including metal, glass, mineral stone, bone and high-density plastic and rubber, as well as gross mass measurement for calculated portion control.

Ideal for inspecting small and medium-packaged products, the Safeline X3310 X-Ray system packs a combination of new technology, ergonomic design, improved user experience and sustainability credentials.

Along with outstanding sensitivity, energy is saved as the Safeline X3310 uses a 20 watt X-Ray generator, rather than a 100 watt generator provided with previous systems. As a result, the cost of ownership is dramatically reduced.

Packaging equipment distributor and line integrator MD Packaging Inc. of Markham, Ont., is the Canadian agent for Mettler-Toledo Safeline products. They can be reached at
